When it comes to doing my makeup in the morning, I always try to keep it quick and easy so I can catch an extra 15 minutes of sleep – which is why I love Kanebo Sensai Triple Touch Compact, a luxe compact that comes with two concealers and a pressed powder so you can look polished in no time.
My latest favorite liquid foundation to fake glowy, flawless skin? Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup.
Formulated with Retin-A, Matrixyl, Skin Tightener ST and vitamins A and E to stimulate the production of collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin texture, this foundation promises to provide super, long-lasting coverage for a luminous complexion. It comes in a 30ml bottle with a pump and is oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and contains SPF 15.
I have always loved the idea behind powder mineral foundations – their ease in application, lightweight formula and natural ingredients, seriously how can you not? But for years, I have had no luck finding the right product. Most brands either left my dehydrated combination skin dry and irritated or turned my face into a glittery disco ball. And just when I was about to give up on the search, I was introduced to London-based Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation and now I am *totally* hooked!
The Ultra Foundation comes in 12 different shades along with 4 color adjusters to suit a variety of skin tones. I was sent a sample of #4 Sand, which is a yellow-based color and a decent match for my NC30 skin.
Stila‘s latest invention, One Step Makeup, promises to roll primer, foundation, concealer and powder all into one product to deliver weightless, high definition, long wearing skin perfection for all skin types. Let’s find out if it’s too good to be true!

I have always *loved* the effect from airbrush foundations but the idea of having to use a gun and compressor just seem too much for every day. Lucky for me, I was sent award-winning SK-II Air Touch Foundation, an airbrush foundation that you spray directly onto your face for the same flawless effect MINUS the bulky equipment and hassle. Want to know if it delivers? Read on to find out!
